Shoulder discomfort still limiting Ogando

ARLINGTON -- Alexi Ogando remains limited to throwing on flat ground while waiting for the discomfort in his right shoulder to subside. Ogando last pitched on June 5 in Boston and is eligible to come off the disabled list on Friday.

But the Rangers aren't going to let him throw off a mound until the discomfort completely goes away. Ogando was on the disabled list from May 16 to June 5 with triceps tendinitis and now he is sidelined with shoulder inflammation. At some point Ogando will need to go on a rehab assignment but that won't happen until he has at least a couple of bullpen sessions off the mound.

Colby Lewis threw off the mound on Monday for the first time since being shut down with soreness in the back of his right elbow. But Lewis, who had surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon on July 27 last year, will likely need several more mound sessions before facing hitters. He was shut down from his rehab assignment and hasn't pitched in a game since May 25.
